I use Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream with Cover FX Custom Color drops, which sounds like extra work/money because you have to mix it but is totally my holy grail. I also like Diorskin Airflash, Too Faced Born this Way and YSL Touche Eclat.

I would also suggest colour correcting with green. It'll cancel out the redness and you actually end up not needing as much foundation imo. I love Becca, but NYX has a cheaper one that's pretty good.

Aztec clay mask is amazing! It's a bit harsh but it does help with acne and shrink pores.

 I hear Aztec clay masks are very good has anyone used those? 

 

it actually made me break out in little pimples :( that may be because I put a too-thick layer on and left it on too long so it dried out my skin? Tonight I'll try doing a thinner layer though, so maybe that will help. I really want to like it because the powder is so cheap and easy to make, if it helped my acne I'd be saved haha

i use missha perfect cover bb cream its cool has medium coverage i guess tho i don't put that much and only on problem areas ; the good thing about korean makeup is the color as im pale af 99% of the regular bbcream/foundations ive tried have pink undertone even in the lightest shade and it's just ridiculous on me and never broke me out or anything so it's good 

when i was younger i remember using a liquid foundation from avene i don't really know if that brand exist outside of france but in general foundations found in pharmacy are pretty good 

regarding treatment i try to use as little as possible as i believe for my skin the more stuff i use the more i have chances of breaking out because my skin is too irritated so i try to let my skin breath as much as possible ; for night time i use a mix of jojoba oil and tea tree oil 2 drops of each i never use tea tree oil on its own as it can be very strong and harsh and i put it where i need it ; also i guess just make sure to really clean off your makeup everyday so you don't have residues going into the pores and clogging them and exfoliating once a week and drink water

Old topic but I had really bad acne for a few years and it was a mixture of normal and deep cystic acne. I tried proactive (didn't work), I tried face masks (didnt work), etc. But after casually going through an article on the Web I found something that works. It's the Neutrogena daily leave on mask. You put it on twice a day (I do it before make up and primers and before I go to sleep). The only cons to it is that if you over use it you'll get dry skin, and it can bleach clothes. It started working within HOURS. I love it now and I have clear skin!

I don't really care if this is an old topic, it's a question that's likely to come up again here. 

I use mineral foundation -- not perfect coverage but it's free from all the emollients and ingredients that can cause acne. I have Alima Pure, but Bare Minerals is probably the more accessible brand. 

I like to use BHA liquid to help my breakouts. It's salicylic acid. Though, when I was a teen, I found using products with zinc helped the healing process.

I have so many favorites, I'll probably just type up my skincare routine; but makeup wise I like using Burts Bees BB cream.

Face-wash: Avalon Organics Lavender Cleanser (helps take off makeup too, doesn't irritate my eyes whatsoever!)

Exfoliation: Currently for my face it's Biore Charcoal Scrub and to exfoliate my body I like using coffee grounds with coconut oil.

Mask: Aztec Clay :alpacacrush: I usually mix in turmeric and Bragg's ACV; I love using ACV as a toner as well.

Moisturization/Oils: My main favorite face moisturizer is Bee Yummy Skinfood by Live Live & Organics and pure argan oil. I also like tea tree oil since it can help dry out pimples; DEFINITELY not moisturizing.

Also, something a lil extra is rosewater, I could spray it on my face all day it feels so damn nice.

^ argan oil is amazing!! tea tree also

just to add, nature republic's bee venom line (it's a korean brand!!) is incredible! it sounds terrible but it's very suitable for acne-prone and sensitive skin types! they have an emulsion, an essence, and a facial cleanser among other things, bbbbut imo if you're going to get anything from that line, get the cleanser, it's probably one of my holy grail items :))

idk if theres anything in makeup that can improve/prevent acne, but i use a treatment called benzac which is just like benzoyl peroxide gel 2% which literally CLEARED my skin COMPLETELY. Like *not sponsored* *not an ad* guys it was bomb and I recommend it over any korean or 'natural' skincare because its literally medicine haha.

i've been using aloe vera (each 2 days and so) and it's been working fantastically :alpacacrush: if used everyday, having sensetive skin, it can irritate. i've been looking for some acne masks and all i find are extremely pricey ;^; 

ah, and i've been modifying my diet; not much chocolate nor greasy foods. any good tips? :alpacaconfused:
